"Cheat Meal" Corn Chowder

Monday, November 18, 2013

Yep, you caught me red handed. This soup doesn't exactly meet the criteria as a "health" food... But it's so darn good I can't help but share it with you. Hence the name... "cheat meal" corn chowder ;). Hey, everyone is allowed some soul food every once in a while! Let's just say this... If you brought this soup to your next potluck, people will go crazy!

Ingredients 
1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 cup water
1 yellow onion
1 cup chopped celery
4 cups diced potatoes
1/3 cup flour
2 1/2 cups milk
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp dill weed
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 large can of corn (or two regular size cans)

Instructions

1. Peel and dice potatoes. Chop onions and celery. 

2. Put butter and water in large pan, bring to a boil. Once boiling add potatoes, onions and celery. Continue to boil for 20 to 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir often.

3. Once vegetables are tender add remaining ingredients to soup (flour, milk, pepper, garlic salt, dill weed, cheese and corn).

4. Reduce to medium-low heat and simmer until soup thickens (I simmer mine another 20 minutes). Stir frequently so bottom of pan does not burn. 

5. Remove from heat and enjoy!
